Every child is different. Some children are quick learners while others take their time to familiarize themselves with a concept. Some children like numbers while others are like art. Some children are scientists while others are artists. These talents are often lost in traditional schools where all students are seen with one common lens and are taught in the same way and at the same pace.
If all children are different, why should their learning be the same?
Every child requires individual attention and a personalized approach to education. This is where homeschooling comes in. An increasing number of parents in the UAE are opting for homeschooling because it’s providing their children better and inclusive education. According to an article published in Khaleej Times, parents are homeschooling their kids because it allows them to focus on important subjects for their child’s future.
Let’s have a look at the advantages of homeschooling.
With homeschooling, you can tailor the curriculum according to your child’s learning behavior and interest. If they need more support and time to learn science, you can allocate more time for science and bring innovative ways, additional books, and resources for it. So your child learns at their own pace in a way that optimizes learning for them.
When your child is learning in an environment where they’re loved and taken care of, it helps them in their emotional development. They aren’t scared of asking a question or giving a wrong answer. They know they won’t be bullied for their wrong answer. The personalized environment allows your child to develop their own identity, to understand their strengths and weaknesses, and to explore their future goals so they’re more self-aware and self-confident.
Since your child is not spending 6–7 hours every day at a school, they have the time and energy to participate in extracurricular activities. They can go for swimming lessons, or dance classes or learn a new language—and this can become a part of their learning experience. You can arrange field trips according to your child’s interest. For example, if they like learning about animals, you can take them to a zoo.
You can decide the length of learning hours that suit the best for your family. If your child is not an early riser, you can work a schedule where their sleep time is balanced so they remain active during their lessons. If your family is planning to go for a vacation or a farm trip, you have the freedom to arrange the holidays accordingly so your child enjoys family-time as well.
